We had a very large time. Family time is the best. Everybody caught a large fish. Complements to the Captain! Would recommend to everyone great time.

Had a great time today! My 15 year old son’s first salt water fishing experience. We both caught fish even though the water was rough.

I have fished with Randall twice now. Both have been great. Randall is a no nonsense fish catching machine. He’s that guy you would want if S*** hit the fan and you had to catch and kill to eat. He’s that good. We have already booked a snapper trip with him and two duck hunting weekends in December.

We had a great time from the first min we showed up until the time we had to leave. Captain Randall and his brother captain Rick know where and how to catch fish captain Randall was very good at asking what we wanted to get out of our experience with him on this day . He more then meet that . We limited out and then came back closer to shore and wrapped the day up with some sheep head fishing .was a day my teen aged boys will never forget my youngest son now wants to be a deck hand I highly recommend captain Randall he is a super good guide and will make u feel like family. Look forward to next adventure with captain Randall. THANKS CAPTAIN RANDALL AND CAPTAIN RICK ... Had the time of our life

I took my wife and son out to fish. We had a great time and it was a very nice trip. I’d recommend him and would use him again.

My sons and I had a great day in the water. Weren’t catching anything at our first location so we moved and then they bit like crazy. We are very inexperienced at fishing and we still had a great time.

Great time! Captain Randall knew where the fish where…kept our hooks baited and reeling the fish in! Even dealt with those pesky sharks!!!! My son had a great time battling that one!!! See you next year…

Fishing

Captain was awesome! We booked the afternoon trip and figured the fishing wouldn’t be great as it was the hottest day of the year. We got bit all day. We probably caught 30 fish. Nothing huge but it’s inshore fishing in the dead of summer. We had great conversation with the captain and had an amazing day!! Thank you guys for the trip and we will be calling next time we are in town!!!

The captain was very up front with us before we went out , fish wasn’t biting much but we still went because that’s all my oldest daughter wanted to do while we were visiting . I’m so glad we did , we enjoyed ourselves very much ! The girls caught several small fish & it was nice chatting with the Captain and his son ! I can’t wait for another trip out !!
